Soooo…Tanner didn’t adjust the best to the cereal…she started spitting up A LOT!!! And I’m still nursing her and I’m sad cuz I pump at work, but I’m drying up really fast!! So her dietican redid the diet and now she gets 2 8 oz bottles of enfamil, one 8 oz bottle of phenex-1, and nurses the rest of the time!
I was really nervous bout how I was gonna pay for all of the special food, being a single mom and in Indiana we get help with the formula, but not with actual food. So I asked her dietican and she said not to worry because Tanner’s levels are so low that she’ll be able to have regular pastas and breads, just the other stuff she won’t be able to have…
